Kuwait 3rd Most Peaceful Arab Country For 2012

The Global Peace Index 2012 has been published and it seems like Kuwait is less peaceful this year. It’s ranking 47th in the world, after it ranked 29th last year.

Kuwait’s ranking also makes it the 3rd most peaceful Arab country. What I find very impressive is Qatar’s rank.

Here’s a list for all Arab Countries:

  1. Qatar (#12)
  2. UAE (#46)
  3. Kuwait (#47)
  4. Morocco (#54)
  5. Djibouti (#56)
  6. Oman (#59)
  7. Jordan (#62)
  8. Tunisia (#72)
  9. Saudi Arabia (#106)
  10. Egypt (#111)
  11. Bahrain (#118)
  12. Algeria (#121)
  13. Mauritania (#125)
  14. Lebanon (#136)
  15. Yemen (#143)
  16. Syria & Libya (#147)
  17. Iraq (#155)
  18. Sudan (#156)
  19. Somalia (#158)

The most peaceful country in the world is Iceland (#1), while Somalia (#158) comes last. Both are the same as last year.

The rankings are determined based on many factors such as political instability, violent crime, freedom of press, adult literacy rate, hostility to foreigners, etc… See all the detailed criteria here.
